Relationship Rules: Text Messaging
At very first, wij scoffed at this &ldquo,brief message service,&rdquo, famously known spil SMS. This fresh fad of text messaging wasgoed too impersonal, too informal, too slow, and not long after, too popular to overlook any longer. What wasgoed merienda a quick way to pass on brief messages (recall our old, boxy Nokia phones with selectable options like &ldquo,Refrigerio zometeen?&rdquo, or &ldquo,Be huis after work&rdquo,?) has now become a forum for the infinite: Formal communication with our bosses, daring late-night messaging with that lady wij met at spin class or even a quick hello to grandma, who also somehow has learned what &ldquo,predictive text&rdquo, is.
Especially concerning has bot the role of SMS within the broad, broad walls of dating. Sure, wij can make plans with our pals or even avoid meetings with our coworkers, but when text messaging embarks to dictate the finicky boundaries of love and zinnelijkheid, certain rules apply. A fresh sort of dialogue is beginning to emerge, so get it right before a text to hier phone becomes a week te the face.
The very first date
After parting ways from your very first date, wij merienda advised to give some time before calling hier back and to be patient te making your 2nd budge. With the advent of text messaging this protocol has blurred, but don&rsquo,t be fooled.
The best usage of the post-first-date text is its perceived innocence. Acceptable messages would be: &ldquo,Hey, I had a good night with you. I can&rsquo,t wait to do it again,&rdquo, or, &ldquo,Just heard someone laugh exactly like that woman wij sat next to the other night, except this time she wasgoed 60 and had a German accent.&rdquo, Little tidbits are reminders that you toevluchthaven&rsquo,t lost view of the time you spent together, but avoid formalities that should be lodged te person.
Under no circumstances should a man project his 2nd date with a woman through text. Things like, &ldquo,Hey, can I pick you up at eight o’clock on Tuesday for a follow-up?&rdquo, can be detrimental to an early duo&rsquo,s dynamic. Leave 2nd date plans, or any follow-up plans for that matter, for the traditional phone conversations wij all know and love however increasingly attempt to avoid.
The follow-up date(s)
True-feeling texting: Maybe you had one too many at glad hour or just want to get your point across, but wij all have a tendency to grab our phones and embark thumbing at our keyboard when wij want hier to know exactly how wij feel &mdash, maybe wij&rsquo,re head overheen high-heeled slippers ter love and never felt like this before, or maybe you can&rsquo,t overeenkomst with the way she talks about hier ex bf’s.
